The Venders (, a technology company formed by two leading figures from the software and automation industries, announces its launch into the automated retailing and vending market.


The Venders has developed automated dispensing kiosks that feature a small footprint to allow retailers and brand owners to sell products in high-traffic areas where space is at a premium, such as airports, convenience stores, gas stations, hotels, and special event locations.


The company was founded by Bryan Ross and Robert Bienias, the team that created Flix on Stix –  an innovative movie rental system that downloads full-length movies from a small kiosk onto a portable flash drive; and Faith Media Center – an app-based software program designed to connect millions of people and allow purchases of products, with proceeds benefiting the consumer’s charity of choice.


The team has also designed some of the most innovative automated retailing and vending systems of the past ten years, for clients that include: PepsiCo, Toyota, Farmers Fridge, IBM, Chemistry Council of America, Ogilvy & Mather, Spinifex, Blint Shakes, the Kardashians, and Wrigley’s.


The Venders new “Slimline” Collection does not look like typical vending machines, and can be wall mounted or placed on a small stand. The Slimline models (4 in total), feature high-definition interactive screens that engage consumers, attract interest, and promote sales.


“We are using our expertise in software, app development and kiosk design, to create a new generation of automating retailing and vending systems that are unlike anything else on the market,” said Bryan Ross, Partner in The Venders. “We will be having several more product announcements within the next few months, and are unveiling some of our latest innovations at the NAMA One Show in April.”


The company has already struck deals with a brand of portable cellphone battery charging devices, a popular international footwear company, and a leading earbud manufacturer.
